Geely Bin Yue Crossover Will Challenge The HR-V, XV & C-HR Soon
This is the Geely Bin Yue compact crossover. It is small yet spacious, achieving a 68.7% wheelbase utilization rate for the cabin. The new architecture also represents Geely Auto’s entry into a new modern era of modular vehicle development and production.
The Bin Yue gives full play to Geely Auto’s newest engine and transmission, allowing it to perform exceptionally in its class in terms of power performance and fuel economy. The Bin Yue comes equipped with a 1.5TD mated to a 7DCT.
The 1.5TD engine powering the Bin Yue was jointly developed by Geely Auto and Volvo and offers a maximum power of 130kW and maximum torque of 255 Nm. It works in tandem with a 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission also developed jointly by Geely Auto and Volvo Cars. This golden powertrain combination allows the Bin Yue to accelerate to 100km/h in just 7.9s whilst having a combined city/highway fuel consumption rating of just 6.1L per 100km. The power performance and fuel consumption rating has made the Bin Yue the new standard in its class.
As a globally strategic model, the Bin Yue has undergone rigorous global tests during its development. The 1.5TD engine completed more than 12 million km of testing through Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. The 7DCT transmission has also completed over 6 million km of testing, covering all complex conditions on four continents.
Geely Auto has paid special attention to intelligent driving technologies in the Bin Yue with it reaching L2 level of autonomous driving with advanced driver aids that includes a smart 360° safety circle, raising the bar on the intelligent driving experience for compact SUVs.
ICC Intelligent Cruise Control is made possible through a combination of millimeter wave radar and high-definition cameras. ICC allows Bin Yue to safely travel at the driver’s desired speed, follow vehicles at speeds up to 150km/h, and even change lanes automatically. APA automated parking assist allows the Bin Yue to parallel park or park in lot with just a push of a button.
The Bin Yue’s smart 360° safety circle is made possible by the latest in Geely Auto’s G-Safety technologies. It’s a combination of the latest generation ESC electronic stability system, a unique AEB-P automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian recognition, BSD blind spot detection system, TPMS intelligent tire temperature and pressure monitoring system, 360° HD imaging system, HD driving recorder, and other safety features. The advanced suite of safety technologies has created a comprehensive smart safety net around the Bin Yue.
